Trackback issues

Is there anybody out there who might be able to tell me why trackbacks are not showing on my individual posts or in my sidebar (where I have recent trackbacks listed)? I can link to my own entries and they show as trackbacks in both the entries and in my sidebar, but I’ve had a few people link directly to particular posts of mine and I get no visible trackbacks; I only know they’re linking to me because I visit their sites.

Does anyone know what the problem might be? I’m using the Get Recent Comments (&Trackbacks) Plug-in if that helps at all.



I'm a wife and mommy first, as well as a social media consultant/manager, editor, and writer. I'm also editor of Musical Reviewer and Houston Theatre Blog.

    Sorry, Julia, I would not even know where to start on this one.

    I don’t even know what a trackback is, yet. I’m still learning the whole blogging thing. 🙂

    I’m sure people more technically minded than me will help you out.

    Ran across your site via Author’s Blogs. I recently questioned the trackback thing, too. Not sure if this helps but here’s a link to Wikipedia on trackback.

    Good luck,

    Hi Julia

    Did you figure out the problem?

    I have tagged you on my blog about a serious meme that is going around the blog world. It concerns children and how they should be safeguarded from easy access to porn sites.

    Wendy– thanks for your concern! I haven’t figured out the problem yet, but whatever happens, happens. Thanks for stopping by– I love your blog! I’ll be catching up on comments soon!

    Hi Tommi– thanks for your input, as well! Things have been busy, so I haven’t gotten to research the links you gave more in-depth, but I really appreciate them! I’ll let you know if I get it figured out!
